Your choice of sign, but 4’ x 8’ works well.

Posters or flyers can be put on the entry doors, above the water fountains and in the restrooms. Dimensions of flyers and posters are 8 ½ x 11 (portrait).
Note: There is an exemption that allows for temporary signs in rights-of-way up to a maximum size of 6 square feet from Friday noon to Monday noon (this includes the small push-down signs).
